About Manual Wheelchairs

Different wheelchair bound people have different mobility needs. There are various Manual Wheelchairs to meet all types of needs. Transport wheelchairs are a convenient, portable, and affordable option for use on short trips. However, their four small wheels do not allow for self-propulsion. Lightweight or Ultra Lightweight Wheelchairs are helpful for those who have difficulty maneuvering Standard Weight Wheelchairs. For users with difficulty sitting fully upright, a Reclining Wheelchair may be helpful as the chair back reclines as much as 90⁰. Alternatively, a Tilt-in-Space Wheelchair where the back and seat of the wheelchair tilt, may be suitable for their needs.

The depth, width, and height of the seat as well as the weight capacity of the chair should be carefully chosen to suit the user’s needs.   It is also important to consider whether there is a need for a wheelchair with room for growth.  We at Medical Arts Chemists & Surgicals have been servicing the New York area for years.
